Spanish prince follows in king's footsteps and tours oily beaches
Mon Dec 16,12:53 PM ET

MADRID, Spain - Crown Prince Felipe walked on beaches tarred by fuel oil and drew cheers from fishing communities Monday in a replay of the visit Spain's king made to coastal towns devastated by the Prestige tanker disaster.

People shouted insults at politicians accompanying the heir to the Spanish throne as he toured beaches on the island of Ons off the coast of Galicia and visited a wharf in the fishing village of Aguino.

The politicians, who included Galician president Manuel Fraga and Spanish Environment Minister Jaume Matas, were accused of failing to provide coastal dwellers with equipment to fight spills that have ruined much of Spain's northwest coast since the tanker Prestige started leaking on Nov. 13. It broke in two and sank six days later.

Aguino is one of the towns where fishermen have used nets, cranes and their own gloved hands to scoop up oil thick as chewing gum and keep it from contaminating rich seafood beds.

"It is still time to get down to work," Prince Felipe said. "Here I want to give a message of support for Galicia and hope that we got out of this situation quickly."

On the island of Ons, part of a national park along with two other contaminated archipelagos, cleanup workers showed the prince how they cut the oil with shovels and pick it up in chunks, the national news agency Efe said. They also told him how frustrating it is to arrive each morning and see more oil covering spots they had cleaned the day before.

King Juan Carlos visited the towns of Muxia and Laxe, among the hardest hit, on December 2 and trudged along a tarry beach to chat with cleanup workers. In Muxia the crowd cheered "Viva el Rey" and booed Fraga and other leaders traveling with him.

The single-hull tanker Prestige is estimated to have spilled just under a quarter of its 77,000 metric tons (20 million gallons) of fuel oil in the initial crisis and sinking. The government says it continues to leak about 125 tons (33,000 gallons) per day.

Here's an article from Hello! website where Felipe talks about his current single status, marriage, etc.

Quote:
29 JANUARY 2003
In an interview to mark his 35th birthday, the man voted dishiest bachelor crown prince by hellomagazine.com readers – Prince Felipe of Spain – has revealed there's "nothing new" in his private life. But when his future queen does appear, he says, he'll tie the knot for love.

Royal watchers have been speculating about who may be Felipe's perfect princess, especially since he split up with his Norwegian girlfriend, model Eva Sannum, more than a year ago. For now, however, the prince has "no plans, no names" to satisfy the curious in respect to marriage prospects. "I know there is a lot of interest and that it will grow as years pass," he says, "but there's nothing new on the horizon which would allow me to clarify that aspect of the future."

When the time comes to choose a potential spouse, however, one thing is clear. "I am fully aware of my responsibility in regard to the crown, Spanish society and the Spanish public, and also, therefore, the significance of my marriage," he said, adding later: "So the future queen must understand, appreciate, and know how to represent that function in Spanish society."

Though duty comes first, the 6ft 4in hunk, who was erroneously linked to Gwyneth Paltrow late in 2002, insists he's not going to sacrifice what every happy union needs – true love. "I won't abandon my aim to marry someone I'm in love with, someone with whom I have an honest, profound relationship on which to base a family, common values and interests that will allow us to share a family and professional life… to serve Spain in the best way possible."
Hello Hola

Spanish prince impresses at German chancellery
Wed Mar 19, 5:14 PM ET


Crown Prince Felipe of Spain and German Chancellor, Gerhard Schroeder during a press conference.

BERLIN (AFP) - No details emerged from talks between Crown Prince Felipe and Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, but the Spanish royal made a strong impression on the German leader's female staff.

Encouraged by Schroeder himself, two of the chancellor's closest aides posed for photographs with the 35-year-old prince, known in the German press as "Europe's most attractive bachelor".

"They said for one time they wanted to have their photograph taken with a really handsome man," Schroeder said amid a storm of camera flashes.

The prince began a four-day trip to Germany on Tuesday but has refused to discuss politics.

Regional government officials in the eastern state of Saxony said Felipe canceled a planned visit to Dresden where he was to tour a Volkswagen plant Thursday because of the looming war on Iraq.

His trip was planned long in advance, but falls as Spain prepares for war with Iraq alongside the United States and Britain, while Germany opposes military action.

PRINCE FELIPE OF SPAIN


PREPPY

Spain's 6ft 4in crown prince – one of Europe's most eligible bachelors – has a penchant for navy blazers and polo shirts, cutting a dashing figure on both official visits and while relaxing at the marina. Known for his conservative approach to clothes, the keen yachting enthusiast never goes overboard when it comes to fashion

I don't know about Felipe with a beard. I generally like a little bit of scruff on a man, but it sort of makes Felipe look way older and a bit scary - even with those nice eyes of his!

I don't think this is recent... but it was SO cute!! I had to add it! :P

Spanish Crown Prince Felipe jokes with girls in regional dresses during a visit to the North Western village of Lu'a October 28, 2000. The remote village was awarded the annual "Pueblo Ejemplar" (exemplary village) prize for villages in the region of Asturias

I wonder if seeing more and more of his friends getting married puts ideas in Felipe's head?! :P I've heard that many single people (but espescially men) find themselves thinking more and more about marriage and seeing that potential in each woman they date as they become one of the few or the last single person in their group/social circle. Actor Hugh Grant recently commented on this "phenomenon" in Vanity Fair.
